Abstract

Objective. We have studied whether plasma fibronectin is related to a risein blood pressure during normal pregnancy, whether it can be used for the early prediction of preeclampsia, and whether plasma fibronectin is a marker for organ involvement in preeclampsia. Study design. Two hundred twenty-eight healthy pregnant nullipara women were examined prospectively during pregnancy. Analyses of fibronectin in plasma were performed in pregnancy weeks 16, 24, 28, 32, and 36. During the same period, 177 patients with suspected preeclampsia and/or intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) were tested for plasma fibronectin, mainly in the third trimester. Results. In the normal population of pregnant women (n=222/228), fibronectin levels were 0.35 +/- 0.06 gn in pregnancy week 16 and 0.43 +/- 0.12 gn in week 36. These levels showed a positive correlation to blood pressure elevation during pregnancy (r=0.21, p=0.006). The six patients in this group (n=6/228) who later developed preeclampsia had higher fibronectin values 0.42 +/-: 0.07 g/L already in week 16 (p=0.023). In the population of women with suspected preeclampsia (preeclampsia, n=129, IUGR alone, n=17; hypertension or proteinuria during pregnancy, n=31), fibronectin values were significantly higher, 0.75 +/- 0.27 gn than in the normal population. Patients with preeclampsia and laboratory signs of organ involvement (n=56) showed significantly higher fibronectin values (0.85 +/- 0.27 g/L) compared to preeclampsia without organ involvement (n=73) [0.76 +/- 0.22 g/L (p=0.03)]. Conclusion. Our data show that fibronectin is related to blood pressure inpregnancy. Fibronectin values in women who develop preeclampsia are elevated already in pregnancy week 16 and were higher in those with laboratory signs of organ involvement.
